Fishtronaut Makes Huge Splash in Latin America

The Brazilian animated series Fishtronaut was the most-watched kids TV show (age group four to 11) in its broadcasting time (7:30 p.m.-8 p.m.) during its first week of broadcast on Discovery Kids Channel Latin America.

Created by TV PinGuim’s talented founders, Kiko Mistrorigo and Celia Catunda, the charming 52 X 11 show follows the adventures of a secret agent fish and his best friends, a young girl and a cute monkey as they unravel mysteries and find solutions to environmental dilemmas.

A co-production between TV PinGuim and Discovery Channel, Fishtronaut is the channel’s first venture in animation in partnership with a Brazilian production company. Breakthrough and Millimages are the show’s distribution partners.

An animated feature based on the property is being planned for 2010.
